More About the Author

Since 1921, the Betty Crocker name has symbolized the General Mills continuing tradition of service to consumers. Although Betty was never a real person, her name and identity have become synonymous with helpfulness, trustworthiness and quality.

Betty Crocker has survived the decades by providing consumers with food information and food products that are contemporary without being faddish. The first hardcover cookbook, Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook was published in 1950 and quickly became a national best seller. Since then, more than 250 Betty Crocker cookbooks have been published.

THIS COOKBOOK IS A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT. THE RECIPES ARE EASY TO FOLLOW AND THE COORDINATING PICTURES ARE A HELP WHEN PRESENTATION IS IMPORTANT! I AM A LIBRARIAN AND WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT MENTION THAT THE BINDING DOES NOT WEAR WELL WITH AGE. THE COOKBOOK IS SO RELIABLE, THAT REPAIRING THE BINDING IS WORTH THE TIME AND REPLACING THE BOOK WITH THE SAME ONE IS A CONSIDERATION.

Years ago as a young bride I fell upon this wonderful cookbook... for years I would check it out at the local library and then sadly return it! I finally decided to purchase copy and found it was out of print! Years have passed by and by chance I thought I would check for it online thru amazon... and I am thrilled to say that I found a copy!!!! Yeah!!

The recipes are wonderful - and delicious - this is not a cook book for a "modern" cook who wants it all easy and the ingredients are all from scratch - so if you love to cook from scratch and love the taste of old fashioned recipes - I highly recommend it!

I am so thrilled, I am going to purchase copies for my daughters hope chests....

Thank you , thank you!

My mom gave me this book when i got my first apartment, it got lost and i found one at an old garage sale- beat to sXXX, but the recipies are simple or complicated depending on how advanced you are, it even has how to make hard boiled eggs. I always go to it when i need a standard how long to cook this or that, recipies can easily be made with most of the ingredients- when you want to make something but can't get to the store(and have most of the ingredients) this is an all around standard!!
great, mine is really beat up and the origianl never showed up so now i am looking for a replacement.
